An expectant Ellen Pompeo was seen attending the Lakers game with her husband, Chris Ivery, at the Staples Center on Wednesday in Los Angeles, California.
How will Ellen’s popular TV show, Grey’s Anatomy, work around her maternity leave next season? Series creator Shonda Rhimes tells EW, “We’re actually still talking about that. The writers have disbanded for the season and we’re going to come back together at the beginning of June, so we’re still talking about what we’re going to do and what that’s going to mean. Her maternity leave doesn’t actually come into play until later this season. We will have shot a number of episodes by that point. [And] Ellen is extraordinarily optimistic about what she’s going to be able to do. She’s such a trouper and I’m really am grateful to her for it. We’ll take it as it comes.”
This will be the first child for the 39-year-old actress. Still no word if they’re writing a McBaby into the Grey’s script.View Slideshow »»
